Pfarrer: Americans sold a bogus story of bin Laden kill mission
Chuck Pfarrer

Retired SEAL Team commander Chuck Pfarrer, author of SEAL Target Geronimo: The Inside Story of the Mission to Kill Osama bin Laden, told Guns & Patriots that the Obama White House manufactured their own narrative of the SEAL raid that killed bin Laden for the purpose of a quid pro quo with Hollywood.

The 2012 action thriller “Zero Dark Thirty” allegedly tells the story about the May 1, 2011 SEAL raid code-named “Neptune’s Spear” on bin Laden who was hiding in Abottabad, Pakistan, is fictitious, said the former SEAL
commander, who spoke to members of the SEAL Team Six, and other
principals involved while gathering information on his book. “Look at
the movie – it’s preposterous.”

The movie mimics Obama’s then counterterrorism advisor, John O. Brennan’s version
of events, when he describes a bottom-up SEAL operation and a
45-minute, three-flight firefight that never took place, he said.

“Pakistani investigators found seven hand grenades on the third floor
after the raid,” he said. “If the assaulters came from the ground
floor, bin Laden would have certainly used them.”

As detailed in Pfarrer’s book, there was no evidence of a
three-flight firefight, no spent cartridges and no bloody boot-prints.
According to eye witnesses Neptune’s Spear was a top-down operation, not
a bottom-up one, he said.

The helicopter landed on the roof of the compound, as planned, and the SEALs
jumped down into the third floor, shot and killed bin Laden and one of
his sons, said Pfarrer. “It was over in about 90 seconds.”

Eye witnesses said about 10 to 15 minutes into the operation, the
helicopter came off the roof, unmanned, crashed nearby and was later
deliberately blown up by the departing SEAL Team, he said.

“The American media stuck to the crashed-on approach story even
though Pakistani news sources quoted bin Laden’s neighbors who saw the
helicopters land on the roof,” he said.

Pakistan’s own investigation, the Abottabad Commission Report,
quoted Pfarrer’s book and cited it as the most accurate description of
the actions in the compound, he said. “The WhiteHouse did not get the
story right, twice, so they clamped down on the last narrative–and stuck
to it.”

A month before the raid, Sony pictures hosted President Obama for an
in-studio fundraiser that took in a million dollars, said Pfarrer. Days
after operation Neptune’s Spear, the White House gave Zero Dark Thirty director Kathryn Bigelow and screenwriter Mark Boal
access to the situation room, classified documents, and interviews with
officials who rolled-out the same false narrative, he said.

The press was complacent, he said. “Nobody asked about this symbiosis in the White House briefing room.”

Judicial Watch, a D.C.
government watch group, met with closed doors in its attempt to receive
information from the Obama administration. In July, they filed joint
federal lawsuits against the Department of Defense for failing to
produce answers to its FOIA request.

In a July press release, Judicial Watch said:

“We have assiduously pursued the Obama administration
for the bin Laden death photos for more than three years, and we are
not about to stop now,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.
“President Obama’s decision not to release the bin Laden photos is at
odds with his promises to make his administration the most transparent
in history. And we just want the truth so we can complete the public
record on one of the most significant military operations, and
successes, in United States history. We are concerned that the Pentagon,
as this administration has repeatedly done, has destroyed documents or
played other games in order to deceive the public and the courts. The
fact that we have to file a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit about our
Freedom of Information Act lawsuit shows just how insane this
administration is when it comes to secrecy.”
Pfarrer said he was similarly stonewalled by the DOD and the Central Intelligence Agency
while preparing his book. “I met with the CIA and got the run-around.”
They refused him access to the situation room, composite pictures and
live video that is in their possession, he said.

“My manuscript was vetted by the DOD who made changes to it,” he
said. “At the highest levels of government my story has been confirmed.”
Yet, when his book was released, the White House issued a character
assassination of him, he said. “History deserves better. I stand by my

The SEALs are the best in the world and the operation was a brilliant military success, he said.

“Nobody has to tell me about duty,” said Pfarrer. “Someone needs to tell the truth.”

Scientists Worried About Earthquakes near Oregon-Nevada Border

Military scolded: ‘You don’t protect my freedom’

Military scolded: ‘You don’t protect my freedom’

in time for Veteran’s Day on Tuesday, a leftist writer at Salon.com has
penned a column saying it’s “childish” to honor America’s men and women
in uniform as “heroes.”

In a column titled “You don’t protect my freedom: Our childish insistence on calling soldiers heroes deadens real democracy,”
writer David Masciotra argues it’s been 70 years since American
soldiers fought a war about freedom and “forced troop worship and
compulsory patriotism must end.”

“Put a man in uniform, preferably a white man, give him a gun, and
Americans will worship him,” Masciotra writes. “It is a particularly
childish trait, of a childlike culture, that insists on anointing all
active military members and police officers as ‘heroes.’”

Citing police brutality, sexual assault in the ranks and alleged
murder of civilians by the U.S. military, the author claims calling
today’s troops “heroes” “betrays a frightening cultural streak of
nationalism, chauvinism, authoritarianism and totalitarianism.”

“Even saluting a Marine, while holding a coffee cup, is tantamount to terrorism,” Masciotra insists.

His reasoning continues:”The war in Iraq was clearly fought for the
interests of empire, the profits of defense contractors, and the
edification of neoconservative theorists. It had nothing to do with the
safety or freedom of the American people. … Wars that are not heroic
have no real heroes, except for the people who oppose those wars.”

Masciotra even goes so far as to suggest Americans “should do
everything they can to discourage young, poor and working-class men and
women from joining the military.”

And rather than give soldiers the blanket title of “hero,” Masciotra
suggests America start using the term for teachers, hospice workers and
social workers.

Several social media outlets, like Twitter, have erupted with criticism of Masciotra’s column.

Even television personality Montel Williams was incensed over Masciotra’s screed, launching a Twitter campaign demanding Salon.com apologize for the column.

Williams has blasted out several tweets, including the following:

  • “This piece by @DavidMasciotra is as offensive to #Veterans as it is intellectually dishonest.”
  • “Glad someone fought to defend ur right to prove ‘stupid is as stupid does’ from cheap seats.”
  • “I’d encourage you all to let @salon and @davidmasciotra know just how offensive this piece of mindless stupidity is.”
  • “@Salon owes #veterans an apology. This is as asinine as it is offensive, intellectually flawed.”
  • “Is this really @Salon editorial position? An apology is owed.”
A quick survey of the @Salon and @davidmasciotra Twitter feeds finds
several sources taking up Williams’ call, though @Salon has yet to issue
any kind of response. The Twitter handle @davidmasciotra does not
appear to be linked to Masciotra himself.
